Who are we?

About Us

We are a close-knit friend group with a passion for science, gardening, sustainability, and making the world a better place. We started this venture to fill a niche in the  fertilizer market which hasn't been addressed - a lack of convenient, effective, and environmentally friendly all-purpose fertilizers. After years of research, trial and error, and many long nights, we're proud to present "WriggleBrew"! 

We got our start in the science fairs of high school, learning how to conduct experiments and do research. Following the science fairs, some of us began working as researchers at a lab at UCF, and combining this with our personal experience and tests at our home gardens, WriggleBrew was born - first merely to help our own plants, but soon we began sharing it with friends and family, and ultimately with you!

We've now been joined by people all across the country who believe in our purpose and want to bring amazing, environmentally safe fertilizer to every plant home in the USA!

Sam is WriggleBrew's founder and owner. Sam studied chemistry alongside Gabe at UCF before moving on to study economics to better understand how to found and run WriggleBrew.

"I play saxophone, I do metalwork and I’m a huge outdoorsman: fishing, hiking, camping, SCUBA, biking. I was an Eagle Scout, so I love fresh air whenever I can get it."
